In-Dash Receiver Specifications

Receiver Size

Single DIN: 1 DIN dimensions will work with all single DIN installation kits we have to offer. Single DIN radios are the most common size for after-market stereos.

Single DIN slot with flip-out screen: The DIN stereo includes a retractable, flip-out screen. Before purchasing, make measurements to be sure there is no interference with dash accessories such as A/C vents or shift levers.

Single DIN slot with a larger face: Standard single DIN size, but the display is larger then the standard single DIN size. Due to the nature of the larger face, problems may arise when installing in particular vehicles. These stereos are great for single DIN slots where you want a larger screen.

1.5 DIN: This size is very uncommon in vehicles, however this size opening is most commonly found in Chrysler and Chevrolet vehicles.

Double DIN: Approximately 4-inches in height, this size is becoming more common every year. Prior to 2000, this size was typically only found in Japanese vehicles such as those made by Honda or Toyota. Now, it is becoming more popular for many vehicles to be fit with a Double DIN opening.

Single DIN
Faceplate Security

Detachable / Removable faceplate security: The most common anti-theft feature. It allows you to take the faceplate with you, thus disallowing operation, which deters theft.

Security Codes: Mainly a feature in high end video units which do not have a detachable face / screen. Once the unit is uninstalled (or stolen), a security code (or PIN) is required upon reinstallation. Though you no longer have your unit after the theft, the thief also does not have your security code, which makes the unit useless. The hope is the thief knows which units have security codes and he/she chooses not to steal your unit because of the security code.

Ghost technology: This is not commonly used, but can be found primarily in a select number of 2004-2005 head units. It creates an illusion that no unit is installed by appearing completely black when turned off. Potential thieves may steer clear because it appears as though no head unit is installed.

Anti-theft covers: Similar to ghost and hiding faces because they only create an illusion that the face/unit is not in place.

ESN: Stands for Electronic Serial Number. Allows the disabling of the radio and allows tracking if it is stolen.

Motorized Faceplate
Some in-dash car stereos feature a motorized faceplate that moves to expose a CD or DVD slot. This is a convenient feature that allows the front display to be larger and easier to read. The positioning of the monitor gives you control over the angle you would like to view information on the stereo.
Remote Control
Allows control of specific features and functions from a remote control. Typically they are used to prevent button wear on your radio, or to allow easier navigation of menus.
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

50 watts x 4 channels
RMS Power Output
The amount of continuous power, measured in watts, that an amplifier produces is called RMS power. The higher the RMS rating, the louder and cleaner your music sounds. The RMS output figure is much more accurate than the peak rating when comparing products.
14 watts x 4 channels
Preamp RCA Outputs
RCA outputs, commonly known as preamp outputs, allow you to connect one or sometimes multiple external amplifiers. An in-dash receiver will commonly have one, two or three sets of RCA outputs that can be used to connect external amplifiers and other components. One pair of RCA outputs will typically provide a full range signal that can be used for most subwoofer or speaker amplifiers. Two pairs of RCA outputs can typically be configured as four full range signals, or also as two full range and two subwoofer signals. Three sets of RCA outputs will almost always produce four speaker signals and two subwoofer signals for use with multiple amplifiers.
3 Pairs (Front, Rear, and Subwoofer)
Dedicated Subwoofer Preamp RCA Output
A dedicated output that has a built-in low-pass crossover for specific connection to a subwoofer amplifier that powers a low frequency driver, typically a subwoofer.
Preamp Voltage
The preamp output rating is measured in volts (V). The higher the rating, the stronger the signal. This results in less unwanted noise being picked up.
5 volts
Built-In Equalizer
The number of graphic or parametric equalizer bands the stereo receiver is equipped with. The more EQ options, the more you will be able to adjust your music to your liking.
Dual (L/R) 16-band graphic equalizer
Display Type
The type of display on your receiver refers to the monitor that is used to display the source information such as song names, radio stations, or track times.

Dot-Matrix Text Display: A simple display which uses dots in specific illuminated color(s) to light up and form letters or numbers that are displayed on the receiver.

Graphic or Motion Display: Typically found in mid to high-end receivers and give your text information and receiver more life by adding motion, backgrounds, or multiple colors to your display. There are types of graphic displays such as 3D Graphic, Motion, and OEL (Organic Electroluminescent) displays. They can range from one color to full color displays and typically allow you to select from one of many built-in animations, background images, screensavers or other graphics to enhance your experience and add an extra bit of personality to your system. Some units also come with software that allow you to load your own customizable pictures or animations.

LCD Monitor Display: Can be as small as 2" or as large as 10". Some LCD displays are motorized for angle adjustment. LCD monitors display full motion video playback as well as your standard text such as track status, radio station information and more depending on the receiver's features.

LCD Text Display
Display Color
The display color refers to the color of the text and or graphics on the receiver.

Multi-Color: When more than one color is on the display, for example one part of the text is white, while the other part is blue.

Variable-Color: The display colors can be changed by the user. If the default color of text/display is blue for example, the user can change the settings to where the color turns to red. Variable color displays are typically described in detail in the item's description.

TFT-LCD Display: In-dash receivers with a video screen that display multiple colors and often times video such as DVD, navigation or other video sources.

Variable Colors
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
Variable Color Illumination
CD Signal-to-Noise
CD Signal-to-Noise Ratio is a key specification that is often overlooked by newbies. The CD S/N Ratio measures how well the CD player silences background noise. Higher ratings in decibels (dB) indicates less noise, and generally a cleaner signal.
91 dB
CEA-2006 Compliant
Amplifiers that have been tested to meet specific standards. When a car amplifier meets these standards, you can be sure that it will be able to produce the amount of power specified by the official CEA-2006 rating. Usually, these rating consist of the following items:
  • RMS Power
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio

This rating applies to both external car amplifiers, as well as the amplifiers inside of in-dash stereos.


Playback Features

AM/FM Tuner
Most in-dash CD players have AM/FM playback allowing you listen to your favorite local radio stations.
FM Presets
The number of FM radio stations that can be stored as presets.
AM Presets
The number of AM radio stations that can be stored as presets.
CD-R/RW Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play finalized CD-R discs and/or CD-RW discs.
MP3 Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play discs encoded with MP3 files. To burn a MP3 encoded disc, use the "data" mode on your CD Recorder and finalize the session and/or CD.
WMA Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play discs encoded with WMA files. To burn a WMA encoded disc, use the "data" mode on your CD Recorder and finalize the session and/or CD.
DVD / Video Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver will play DVD (or other listed) video disc formats. Unless otherwise noted, the unit is not guaranteed to play recorded DVDs.
DVD Region Number
This is the region number that the DVD receiver is compatible with. Almost any device that has the ability to play a DVD disk has a region number. DVD region codes restrict playback of movies that come from geographical locations outside of your residing place.
Dual Zone
Dual zone means the stereo is capable of playing multiple audio or video sources between two separate locations.

Please refer to the item description for more details on how dual zone works specifically to the unit you are viewing.


Audio / Video Inputs

USB Input
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver features an input to connect a USB device via standard USB or mini-USB. The USB input may be a connection on the front or rear of the unit with an extension cable for connecting devices to the receiver. Some units have an optional input that allows for a USB adapter to be purchased separately and used with the unit.
Number of Rear USB Inputs
Additional Audio/Video Inputs
These inputs enable the unit to receive an audio or video signal from a separate source. There are many different types of connections and ways to accomplish this. Most common are RCA Composite cables and 3.5mm mini-jack plugs.

RCA Composite Inputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

This is commonly referred to as a mini-jack or a headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm plug that transfers audio only. There is a right and left audio channel on the plug which allows for stereo sound playback.

3.5mm AV Input
These plugs look similar to the common 3.5mm mini-jack, however they carry a third channel dedicated for video.

This means that an auxiliary input is possible, but only with the use of an optional accessory. These optional adapters will sometimes use the CD Changer port or other port on the back of a unit that might restrict the use of other expandability features. These accessories are typically sold separately.

For only those who Love Amazing Sound...

January 2, 2015

If you bought another deck, I'm sorry to say you're missing out on the most high fidelity, in-car listening experience you've ever experienced.

To start, the 80prs outputs a 5v signal to your amps. This means that any outer noise introduction into the system (The Hummmmm or buzzzzz), is simply rejected. It also means your amps can "relax" a bit, as your gains will be lowered.

It features three Burr Brown DACs. One for the high, mid and low frequencies. This allows your MP3s, WAVs, etc., to sound wonderful.

On to the user interface... I personally use 64gb SD cards, class 10. This deck has no problem reading the cards quickly. And searching for songs is also easy, if they're organized in the appropriate folders. The screen is clear and easily visible, but not overly bright.

Toggling through other menu items, after you've "played" with it for an hour, and you will, makes you realize how simple this deck is to operate.

Now let's get to the auto EQ and T/A. You may read varied reviews about these features. However, I've been installing systems in all of my cars since I was 18 (32 now), and I'm not one to show too much "excitement" in my words, however, the auto EQ allows my Image Dynamics XS65 component speakers in my front and rear doors (Fully sound deadened and also acoustic material behind each midrange to bounce rear sound away from the speakers and not back into the cones.) to blend perfectly with my JL Audio 12w6 12" subwoofer (Trunk also fully sound deadened.)

The T/A microphone is hung over my driver seat headrest, pointed forward, once auto EQ and T/A has finished running (About 5 minutes.), the center stage is now directly in front of me, on my dash, as if the singer is literally sitting in front of me, persoanally singing for me. The sound the 80prs creates in my car (Clarity, depth, dynamics.) is by far the most impressive sound I've ever heard in any car, ever. It is simply something you need to experience for yourself.

If you want the best sounding system, if you want to enjoy your music to it's fullest, most exciting potential, if you want your vehicle to sound amazing, I'm telling you (And so are others running this deck), nothing, NOTHING, n-o-t-h-i-n-g comes close to competing with this deck.

Order it, enjoy it, and be sure to thank yourself for making the best decision. Your deck is the brain of your system, and the 80prs is the Albert Einstein of in-dash receivers.

Sound quality tips:

Wires and cables: Only use shielded, 100% OFC speaker wires, RCA cables and your amp install kit should consist of this, too.

Door panels and trunk: If you're replacing your speakers, you're obviously removing your doors, or have already (Once you do it once, it's simple.), be sure to add sound deadening material at least 6 inches around your midrange woofer, and also on the backside of the inside door (The plastic part). This greatly reduces any added, yet unwanted noises from vibrations. Do the trunk as well - you do not want annoying vibrations when your sub, or subs, hit. Clean up the sound before the sound is played... get me?

If you're on a tight budget, be patient and wait. Don't buy something just to buy it to move on to the next thing in desperation to complete your system. I've been putting together my system for 5 months now, $3500 later, and it's still not done... this is a passion for me, and if you're considering this deck, your car audio system should be a passion for you, too. Otherwise, except the sound from your factory system.

Peace :)

this is my third super tuner over a lifetime I have never been disappointed, I have to say this one is really nice fairly simple great sound very clean looking. I didn't realize how bad my factory tundra stereo system was until I replaced all speakers and the head unit very happy.

Quality for price this deck wins every time.

March 31, 2014

I've been wanting to do a sound quality build for some time now, but it seemed that every deck I looked at was overly priced and lacked features such as a detailed EQ, Digital to analog converters and a good built in crossover system such as in this deck.

I have a 1999 Honda accord ex and the stock stereo system was just ok to me. The main stereo didn't play Cd's very well as it would skip every song on a disc just for having 1 finger print on the Cd. The front speakers sounded pretty good for being stock they had a good bit of bass and mid bass and the treble from the in-dash tweeters actually sounded good and not at all harsh, but the rear 6X9 speakers didn't sound good at all they lacked in bass of which the front speakers actually hit good in comparison which is sad for 6X9's and the thing I noticed most ''which was probably do to the stock stereo'' is that when a song was playing with just 1-2 instruments in the song it would sound ok, but when the music got more complex the overall sound would lose it's composer/detail.

After I installed the DEH-80PRS and set loudness to on and did a quick EQ set I Noticed a immediate improvement in overall sound quality The stock Accord speakers actually sounded like a new system
The front speakers had more clarity and depth from them and the rear 6X9's actually came alive they sounded better on both highs and lows where before they where pretty much just bland, but now when I play music with some bass in it they hit almost like a small sub-woofer (although not as hard of course but you get the idea).

The overall features,sound quality and performance of this deck can not be beat from any other deck except for the Pioneer deh-99prs, but this deck coming around $900 less there's almost no point in getting the 99prs unless you want the best of the best, but either way this still makes the deh-80prs the 2nd best deck on the market hands down.

All in all this is a very good deck for the money the only thing I didn't like about the deh-80prs is that it still feels a little cheap to me since the face is made of plastic, but it still feels durable to me.

My future build includes adding on focal access components to the front stage and focal access 6X9's for the rear stage and later on they will be replaced by the focal Flax series and my amps will include a focal solid-4 for the mids and highs and a focal solid-1 for the subwoofer of which right now I have a old Kicker l7 15 that I will be using until I can afford a Focal sub-woofer.

If you have any questions just post them to me and I also will be setting up a YouTube account to show the system as of now and then future upgrades.

I hope I helped thanks.

Quality head unit

September 17, 2013

This head unit was as simple/difficult as any other head unit to install. I put it in my 90 Nissan 300zx Twin Turbo that originally had a bose stereo. I paired it with an older hifonics nemesis nx880 amp. I am running some cdt audio components and an 8 ohm home woofer for some lows. The tuning options were great and all the extra's are pretty awesome. I'd recommend this head unit.

Pioneer DEH_PRS80

December 25, 2014

This is my first Pioneer since my outstanding Premier 940MP laid down. All I can say is I am equally impressed with the sound quality of this unit! The install was typical but the sound quality is not. I used it to replace the Bose system in an older Nissan Maxima. Even with the stock speakers and amplifiers it was an instant joy to the ears. The 6 RCA outputs into the stock amps were a little odd but it worked like a charm. I set up the RTA mic and let the system do the rest. Nice flat response across the sound spectrum and the ability to boost or cut as needed to taste. I had this with the 940MP and once you have this option it is hard to do without it. I upgraded the door speakers with Infinity Reference series 2 ohm and the 8" sub with a Kicker Comp DVC 2 ohm sub. I used the factory amp from the sub assembly into the Kicker for now. Again, sound quality is perfection. Being an audio production guy and an amateur electronics nerd I appreciate the Burr Brown op amps and custom audiophile capacitors and resistors. This is where the sound quality battle is won or lost. Noise at the pre amp floor means noise at the output top! The unit is dead quiet and the distortion is nearly non existent even at max volume. I cannot speak for the Mosfet amplifier stage as I am not using it. If it is similar to the 940MP it will do just fine for most users. The Mosfets can handle the Infinity 2 ohm demand without overheating. This will get the most out of any amp put on them. I stuck with silk dome tweeters, again I am quality audio junkie. No harsh Mylar or aluminum tweets. The controls for the front and rear speakers are a level control, built in HP crossover from 50-225 with pass through, 6db and 12db per octave. The sub control has a mono, stereo switch. There is a level control, LP crossover points from 50-225 and 6db, 12db and 18db per octaves. This unit has more inputs than some live sound mixers. Two USB, a front and rear aux, Bluetooth and a front SD slot plus the CD player itself. It will play MP3 WMA (my favorite) and works with those trendy apple products too. The colors will match any dash and the analog looking VU meters are as old school as it gets. Don't expect a light show in the dash or other stuff to keep you distracted (you should be driving and not looking anyway). The controls take some getting used too but I have a long commute so it didn't take long for me to catch on. If you want a professional quality unit, this is THE one.

Best head unit I have ever owned! The features this radio comes with for cost, has to be the best bang for your buck unit out there!
There may be units out there that can do a little more, but at triple the price, for those looking to step up in the quality of their sound image without breaking the bank, this is the radio for you!
Two small gripes keep it from having a perfect score, there is a production flaw that leaves what looks like a very small crack on the right side of the faceplate. It is very small but if you look close you will see it, and it takes awhile to learn how to navigate thru all the controls this head unit has. I got it down after a few days, but none the less it is a little user UNfriendly.
Past that, this headunit has given me the best "sound stage" I have ever had in a vehicle and I couldn't be happier with it.

Great Single Din Deck!

November 30, 2014

Very happy with this deck. I came from a lower end pioneer deck to this one and I do notice a slight sound difference. It seems to be a bit more clear so slightly better sound quality.

Another improvement is that my old deck would regularly mess up with my steering wheel buttons. It would just randomly stop working when it was colder outside. So far with this new deck it has never happened & I did not change any wiring with the new deck (kept the old ones installed)

The look of it is great, looks very professional & good quality however I'm not sure on the durability of the swivel button on it which is what broke on my old deck.

Setting up the system is easy however tuning it properly is harder then older systems. So unless you are good with sound systems and know what all the different options mean its best to get a pro to tune it. I did an ok job myself however I ended up taking it to my stereo guy and he made it much better and also tuned it so the door speakers are just used for highs and by sub takes care of the bass. This way I wont end up blowing my door speakers over time.

Amazing quality

September 19, 2014

I researched alot before getting this head deck and in my opinion there is only one better head deck for sound quality and that's it's big over priced brother lol having three 5v RCA outputs makes a huuge difference to the sound quality and there is so much you can adjust and fine tune I've personall spent hours on end playing with the settings and with a 16 band equalizer I have it set up perfectly so it's crystal clear and no longer able to hurt my ears with any nasty highs and still pump out over 146db of sound. It wouldn't be possible for my car to sound so good without it. Buy one now!!!

Pioneer Professional Series Rocks!

September 18, 2013

I can"t say enough about this deck. It has a clean simple face, without all the flash, and produces the best sound I have ever heard. It is truly a great value in that Pioneer applied all their technology on this one to produce the highest quality sound ever. The best feature is the Auto EQ feature which tunes the internal enviroment of your vehicle and tunes it directly to the drivers seat (if desired). It's like having the artists playing just for you and the sound is truly the best I have ever heard. It's like hearing all your music for the first time again.
Best choice for the true audiophile!

The best Sound Quality unit for the price PERIOD!

January 10, 2014

So far I have only used it in the passive mode but the time alignment and eq work great! I am very excited that I will be getting to set it up in active mode within the next month or so. There are not many head units that can do active if not any at this price. It is able to do 2 way active with sub. It is such a clean a clean unit that even at its max volume at 62 it is only at .015 THD! At around 4.75 volts. I am looking forward to many good years and good music with the 80prs! You will not be disappointed!

Nice purchase

December 23, 2012

I am satisfied with my purchase, quality wise the unit is great. In my opinion, the look does not compare to the old Pioneer Premier units such as the 800. Overall happy though.

This is the best sq deck I have purchased for the price. The options are endless as far as tuning goes. Not too fond of the interface and absolutely hate the beep. Other than that it is great!

value for audio quality

January 6, 2014

Auto eq and auto time align gives you a good starting point. Face plate and chassis feels flimsy, will miss the old school motorized flips. Pioneer menus takes time to get use to. Has enough audio features and config for any user, highly customizable sound, takes time though. For an budget audiophile deck it can be a little more subtle (less flash) and a smaller rotary knob would be nice. In a 98 honda civic: even when a spacer is used to shim the deck out, the rotorary know still touches the bezel when its opened to insert cd or face plate removal. Made in thailand worries me a little also, regarding quality control, components used.

Features and quality mostly. Pioneer is a well trusted brand, owned several between myself and friends with very good results. They have their quirks, but all decks do. Also most of the issues with the others were relating to making stock steering wheel controls work with them, which I have none of, so it shouldn't be an issue.

Good quality, the duel 16 band auto configure EQ, 2 USB, one line in on the back AND a line in on the front.
Duncan K on Feb 11, 2015
I liked the specs on this receiver and it will be replacing an Eclipse CD3200 with 5V 55Ohm output that recently started having some issues and I hope it matches the sound Q of the Eclipse.

I am competing in car audio and it is Rated number 2 in the world for sound quality.

Pandora ready?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2014
Best Answer: It depend on what you mean. It doesn't have pandora on the deck itself but if you have a smart phone you can download the app and either stream it via USB or Bluetooth. I don't use Pandora personally but noticed the icon on my deck when I plugged in my IPhone. I'm a premium user with Spotify. I download music to my IPAD and stream via Bluetooth to the deck. Works great.
